Coloring Pages Manger
Have you ever attended a baby shower where the event was hosted by a family member and you got to participate in coloring pages? You may have done this several times but have you ever given your baby shower coloring pages as a gift? This is such a special gift as your baby will enjoy looking at and viewing all the coloring pictures. Here are some ideas for this great gift.
Coloring pages can be bought or made at home. If you can't make them, get a friend or relative to help you out. For this gift you can choose some of the most popular themes. For example, if you are having a girl, you could give her a coloring page with flowers, pretty butterflies and Barbie. On the other hand for a boy you could give him a coloring page with cars, sports and cowboy.
You may feel uncomfortable giving your baby free coloring pages. One way around this is to give them a subscription to a magazine. You can get the subscription from the baby's nursery or you can place a small ad in the newspaper detailing the subscription you will be giving. This way you won't have to worry about someone else getting the pages while you are away.
If you are interested in making coloring pages for your baby yourself, then you can purchase a baby coloring book. These books usually come in four colors, which are light green, yellow, blue and dark green. These four colors are the most common when coloring pages are made. Most baby coloring books also come with a helpful guide that will show parents how to color.
To start off with you will need a blank baby coloring page and crayon. Next you will need a sheet of poster board. A thick white paper is always a good choice. When making your coloring pages you will want to place a large piece of card board down first, on the sides of the poster board you will want to place another piece of card board across from the first.
You will then want to start to create the coloring pages. For each page you will color in the area that is blank on the poster board. For example, if you are making a page for a doll, you would not just put "ball" colored circles on the board, you would put "apple" shaped circles on the apple shaped board. For the most part, you want to just use your imagination. Once you complete each page you will want to print out that particular page. At this point you will have a set of coloring pages that you have created for your child.
If you are worried that your child might end up coloring something that they do not like, you should take some time to read through the coloring pages. You will want to make sure that it fits in with what your child enjoys. If they have a certain animal in mind, you will want to make sure that they have that in mind when they are coloring. If they are wanting to try writing, they can put down words that they enjoy to help them get through the process. Just keep in mind that coloring pages can sometimes be more difficult than you think, but with a little bit of work and your child's interest, you can make it a fun experience for them.
Once you have completed all of your coloring pages, you may even want to set aside a few to give away to friends and family. This is a great way to encourage your child to participate in activities outside of the home. You will also find that coloring pages can really keep your child's mind active during the downtime in their daily lives. It will allow them to escape and have some fun during the cold days of winter.
